Psalms 112

Psalm 1121

112:1 Praise the Lord!

How blessed is the one2 who obeys3 the Lord,

who takes great delight in keeping his commands.4

112:2 His descendants5 will be powerful on the earth;

the godly6 will be blessed.

112:3 His house contains wealth and riches;

his integrity endures.7

112:4 In the darkness a light8 shines for the godly,

for each one who is merciful, compassionate, and just.9

112:5 It goes well for the one10 who generously lends money,

and conducts his business honestly.11

112:6 For he will never be upended;

others will always remember one who is just.12

112:7 He does not fear bad news.

He13 is confident; he trusts14 in the Lord.

112:8 His resolve15 is firm; he will not succumb to fear

before he looks in triumph on his enemies.

112:9 He generously gives16 to the needy;

his integrity endures.17

He will be vindicated and honored.18

112:10 When the wicked19 see this, they will worry;

they will grind their teeth in frustration20 and melt away;

the desire of the wicked will perish.21
